It is used with analyzers that perform tests in the area of clinical chemistry, immuno chemistry, coagulation, hematology, urinanalysis, nucleic acid, and allergy testing.

It includes modules for registration and decapping of sample tubes, liquid level detection, and sample quality assessment (optional), as well as recapping of sample tubes (optional).

In case of standalone use of the pre-analytical system, the transfer of tubes processed on the pre-analytical system to any other workstation within the laboratory is a subject of validation performed by laboratory itself.", "Country": "XR", "Code": "Intended Use", "Name": "Intended Use" } ] } } ] }
